Every election year, inspired by Jay Rosen, we ask: "What do you want the candidates to be discussing as they compete for votes in this year's Worcester City Council election?" We sift through the suggested questions and pick 3 or 4. Then, we try to interview every City Council challenger on the show, asking those same questions. To prime the pump, this week we get some suggestions from Brendan Melican, Bill Coleman, and Virginia Ryan. Show notes:...
